I agree with you, and I also have a couple comments
The writers suck for bringing Adam into this storyline! Maybe she could have been kidnapped so her character could have remained. That said, if this is going to take forever to clear and Adam is stepped on yet again by his so called family, then I will no longer by watching Y&R. Every character on Y&R has skeletons in their closets, many of them brought to life. Why is Adam your constant scapegoat!
